Family Heaps Praise For Fijian Governmen …FijiFirst
Twenty year-old Shalvi Darshana of Wailoaloa in Nadi today conveyed her sincere gratitude to the Fijian Government for assisting her with her higher education studies in the field of medicine.
The second-year MBBS student could not contain her excitement when she received confirmation from the Tertiary Scholarship and Loans Services (TSLS) yesterday that she was one of the National Toppers Scholarship recipients.
Her father, Mr Dinesh Dutt expressed the family’s appreciation to the Prime Minister and the government for the golden opportunity.
“This was only possible under the umbrella of the Fiji First Party with respect to education through TSLS,” Mr Dutt said.
“As a small business owner with financial difficulties, this assistance has come at the right time as I was struggling to pay for my daughter’s tuition fees. Our family’s hope has been restored as this education assistance through TSLS has reassured and encouraged my daughter to study hard and be successful in life.”
“Her mark in Year 13 at Nadi Sangam College is 373 out of 400. When Government reopened the Topper Scholarship for students studying medicine, we were so happy about it. My daughter applied and yesterday TSLS conveyed the good news via email regarding my daughter’s scholarship. ”
Mr Dutt further added that her daughter’s education was his family’s priority and with the Toppers scholarship, he felt that the burden on his shoulders have been removed.
“I have two daughters and I know their future looks bright. Government’s investment on education is tremendous and I sincerely thank the Prime Minister for his sound leadership and wise decisions which has paved the way for better and quality education for our children,” he said.
“Thank you again for your generosity and support.”
